With Veteran's Day just around the corner celebrating Dr. Joe Medicine Crow's birthday makes even more sense. He is a decorated World War II veteran who was honored with the Presedential MEdal of Freedom.
Here is a video from his 100th Birthday Celebration..
It is quite an achievement to earn a Master's Degree. Quite an accomplishment to be the first one in your family to achieve this. Dr. Crow was the first member of the Crow tribe to earn a Master's Degree!
He is the last living person with a direct oral history of the Battle of Little Bighorn from a participant.
A veteran, a leader, an achiever, Chief Dr. Joe Medicine Crow has lived quite a life. He is a hero to his people and to ours!
